Warning: strtotime() [function.strtotime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Energy Efficiency Ambassadors, Grades 5 - 8

In these activities, students will compare two products that provide the same function (in this case, light), but require different amounts of energy to do their job. Students will research and demonstrate energy efficiency in action and learn how it applies to different technologies. After the activities, students should be able to discuss the following:

* How does using less energy help our environment?
* What are the primary differences between compact fluorescent light bulbs and incandescent light bulbs?
* What are other examples of energy-efficient technologies or practices?
